As Daily News reporters Rich Cimini and Ralph Vacchiano predicted yesterday, the Giants have used their No. 20 first round selection to pick Texas cornerback Aaron Ross. The low-down on Ross via NFLDraftScout.com:

Ross not only excelled as a cover cornerback for the Longhorns, but was also a standout as a punt returner, scoring three times on 76 runbacks during his career. His natural hands were evident, as he also deflected 33 passes and intercepted 10 others. Despite only one full season as a starter, he also generated 205 career tackles.

Excellent playmaker with the ball in his hands on returns (punts, interceptions), as he has that explosive second gear and good forward body lean to hit the seams and gain long yardage … In the open field, he will generally win most foot races … Competitive player who plays with an air of confidence … Not the most instinctive player on the field and is slow to diagnose plays, but shows good urgency to close once he locates the ball … Lacks good press coverage technique, but uses his speed well to mirror the receiver throughout the route
